Thanks for Sharing NIE Week With Us!

In Foundation News On

Happy Friday… and thanks for sharing this year’s NIE Week with us! In case you don’t follow our Facebook page or Twitter, we’d like to leave you with a few facts,

1. The first national Newspaper In Education Week was celebrated in 1983, co-sponsored by the ANPA Foundation and the International Reading Association. Lesson plans were distributed to schools through local newspapers and reading councils. 

 2. Students who use newspapers at least once a week in the classrom score an average of 10 percent better on standardized tests.

3. High School students who participate in school journalism programs earn significantly higher grade point averages, score better on college entrance exams and demonstrate better writing and grammar skills in college compared to students who had no involvement.

4. 62 percent of young adults who remembered using newspapers in school now volunteer and do community service for organizations such as those supporting school or youth activities, tutoring, community improvement, political groups and others. 

 How’s that for a valuable role in shaping our youth?
